Bipolar Junction Transistor

Sixty-one years ago last November, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain discovered the transistor at Bell Labs, in 1951. Before this, electronics used tubes, which happened to be extremely bulky, generated lots of heat, and had short life spans. The invention of smaller, more efficient, and more durable transistors brought a revolution in electronics. They became an important discovery that changed the world forever. The first ideas and experimentation with solid-state electronics began in 1874, but...

Definition of Transistors

TRANSISTOR The name is transistor derived from ‘transfer resistors’ indicating a solid state Semiconductor device. In addition to conductor and insulators, there is a third class of material that exhibits proportion of both. Under some conditions, it acts as an insulator, and under other conditions it’s a conductor. This phenomenon is called Semi-conducting and allows a variable control over electron flow. So, the transistor is semi conductor device used in electronics for amplitude. Transistor...

CB Characteristics Of A Transistor 3

 Experiment No: 9 Date: COMMON BASE CHARACTERISTICS OF A TRANSISTOR Aim: To plot the input and output characteristics of an NPN transistor in common base configuration and calculate various parameters. Components and Equipments Required: Transistor, voltmeters, ammeters, rheostats, dc sources, breadboard and CRO. Theory: In CB configuration, the base of a transistor is common to input and output circuits. Input voltage is applied between emitter and base and output is taken across collector...

Bipolar junction Transistors 1. Introduction The Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) is one of the most important solid-state devices. It is a two-junction, three-terminal device, in which the current flow properties of one p-n junction can be modulated by another p-n junction. The structure can be either p-n-p or n-p-n. The three terminals are called emitter, base and collector. The circuit symbols of the two types of BJT are shown in Fig.1. The arrow on the emitter signifies the direction of...

LDR notes

the nucleus to account for the absence of one electron. Both n-type and p-type semiconductors contain sufficient free electrons to form good conductors. The p-n junction join the n-type and p-type semi-conductors. The resulting p-n junction forms the basis of diodes and transistors, the backbone of modern electronic. At a p-n junction, the free negative electrons in the n-type semiconductor move across to the p-type semiconductor to fill the positive holes. The region where the holes and electrons...

Thyristor Ram

size, high performance, reliable device operation, and good scalability. Use of thyristor provides a positive regenerative feedback that results in very large bit cell operation margins. The difference is that the four-transistor CMOS latch of a 6T-SRAM is replaced by the PNP-NPN bipolar latch of a single thyristor device, which reduces cell area dramatically and enables high-density macros. 2: Need of the technology: There has always existed a fundamental performance-density trade-off between...

The Fermat's Last Theorem By Simon Singh

degree student because of the offering combination of Electrical and Electronics. My interest in transistors which had begun in my school days fortified by then and prompted me to that. I followed it up with specialization in Microelectronics and VLSI Design in my post-graduate study. The more I studied about semiconductor devices, the more my interest in them grew. I learned that the number of transistors on a chip has grown in accordance with Moore’s law for the past fifty years; however it has reached...
